What are Care Plans and Risk Assessments?
Care plans and risk assessments are the cornerstone of your ability to delivery effective and safe care. Without planned care and nursing intervention how can your care be consistent, be safe and be person-centered? Not only this, but documentation is a legal requirement set out by the Health & Social Care Act 2008 among other UK laws.
Care planning is planning the care for you staff to follow, whereas risk assessing is planning control measures to minimise the risk of harm; whether this is due to someone's medication conditions, mental health or physical ability.
What Are The Benefits of This Course?
There are plenty of benefits to undertaking this course, from your staff understanding the reasons behind why care planning is so important through to safeguarding service users. Other benefits include demonstration to inspectors and the local authority, how you are maintaining a service user's condition, their medication, their own personal routine and their own goals.
Through effective care planning, you're also able to promote a consistent approach to person centered and culturally appropriate individualised care; a very important aspect within the care industry. As well as this, detailed care plans and risk assessments also allow agency workers, new starters and people returning from leave an opportunity to understand the people they are to support, increasing their ability to carryout safe and effective care.

Training with the Leicestershire Training Team
Training is one of the most important aspects of anyone's working life, however it is commonly a source of boredom, resulting in a poor retainment of information. This is why we started thinking about training differently. For us, the training needs to be engaging as well as informative, so what you learn today, will be remembered tomorrow.
Training with us is a unique experience, with a potent mixture of fun, interactivity, real life experience and expert advice. We only use trained professionals, such as our nurse trainers, to deliver our training. This way you are taught by someone with real hands on experience.
